Watch Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo fight ninjas in an odd commercial for a new business venture he’s launching with a Salford shareholder.
CRISTIANO RONALDO flaunted his acrobatics once more, this time to aid in the war against ninjas.
Throughout his career, fans have grown accustomed to seeing the footballing legend twist, jump, twirl, and flip – and occasionally crash – his shredded physique.
Few will forget his spectacular overhead strike for Real Madrid against Juventus in 2018.
But, early on Thursday, he took to Instagram to show off his best Chinese art of bian lian, which he uses to ward off attackers from all directions, exactly like he does at Old Trafford.
Ronaldo kicks and swipes the swords and fire away in the commercial.
Before walking away with an umbrella displaying the name of the brand ZujuGP, there is even a reference to the Portuguese legend’s signature celebration.
Ronaldo is teaming with Salford City shareholder, Valencia owner, and Singaporean businessman Peter Lim in the new digital enterprise, which wants to bring football fans together.
According to their website: “ZujuGP is a community platform that connects East and West, serving as a hub for not only fans but also businesses and ecosystems.

“Cristiano Ronaldo, the world’s most influential footballer, attempts the Chinese art form of bian lian (), his successive mask changes a physical and figurative reminder of football’s shifting faces thousands of years ago.
“Finally, there will be a gradual shift to a future in which everyone may join together.
“As a worldwide football umbrella, we galvanize communities onto a single platform.”
Ronaldo can make up to £1.5 million each sponsored post on Instagram, thanks to his record 355 million followers, it was revealed earlier this month.
That is more than seven times the amount paid to any other Premier League player, with his Manchester United team-mate coming in second with £208,000.
